Gladys Smith – Happy 100th Birthday!

Posted on: December 17th, 2020 by Parkwood Seniors Community

This is an incredible milestone, but not nearly as incredible as you are.

Gladys Smith celebrated her 100th birthday on December 17th at Parkwood Seniors Community.  Gladys and her husband came to live at Parkwood in 2008.  A few years ago, Gladys moved into long-term care. She has had a very full life – 4 children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Gladys is a very accomplished person.  She has an ARCT degree in piano.  In her late 40s she went to Brock University to acquire her B.A. She continued her studies and obtained Master’s in Education (MEd) degree.  She is highly qualified (retired) high school teacher, respected by her colleagues and esteemed by her students.

Mrs. Smith has been always active in her church, she led the Choir and played piano for services. She and her husband were avid travellers, having visited 72 countries! Cheerful, helpful, caring, Gladys has made many good friends at Parkwood.  She has contributed in many ways to this community, especially delighting folks with her wonderful piano playing. 🎶

Best wishes from all of us at Parkwood Senior Community.


Dear Friends of Parkwood Community

Posted on: December 11th, 2020 by Parkwood Seniors Community

Dear Friends of Parkwood Community,

As the extraordinary year of 2020 draws to a close, we celebrate Christmas in a world where everything has changed.  It has been a year like no other – where masks and hand sanitizer are essential items; meeting with family and friends is restricted; and there is a risk of contracting COVID wherever we go. 

Despite these challenges, the spirit of kindness and gratitude infuse our Parkwood Community. Many people have offered gifts and encouragement to our residents, families, and team members in these difficult months. Students from neighborhood schools took their time to send uplifting handwritten cards. These blessings are reminders of how thankful we are for the generosity and care of our wonderful community. 

Each year, Parkwood strives to walk in partnership with residents and families to build a community that balances a happy and welcoming home environment with the excellence in clinical care that residents require. This year, we invite you to consider donating to Parkwood for initiatives in 2021. As always, our goal remains to provide excellence in care through our values of faith, kindness, trust, excellence, and accountability.

We look forward to a New Year where we will return to a gathering for fellowship, recreation programming, and special events.  Parkwood is not the same without our friends, our volunteers, and all our community at large.  We miss you!

Parkwood and its team members wish you and your loved one’s health and happiness this Christmas season and in the New Year.

With sincere gratitude,  

Christine Normandeau, Executive Director

Kindness Speaks

Posted on: January 27th, 2020 by Parkwood Seniors Community

You could see, feel and hear the kindness of Parkwood staff at the “Kindness Speaks!” training sessions this past Thursday, January 23rd and Tuesday, January 28th.

As part of our ongoing initiatives to grow our positive workplace culture, our Mentor team presented the four foundations: We are Innately Kind, Kindness is Good for You, Cultivate a Kind Character and Everyone is a Leader.
Everyone has their own unique brand of kindness that is contagious. It may be that colleague who always has a smile on their face or the person who never fails to lend a hand when things get busy. Now we know our own strengths in the attributes of kindness. We can strengthen ourselves and support each other by having the courage to call on team members to “Stay above the waterline!” or the compassion to include a new team member on a lunch break.

Kindness invites us to consciously pause, reflect and adjust our interactions, asking in any situation, “What would kindness do?” When we practice focusing on the positive, being grateful for what we have and affirming the good in others, we are leaders in a way that inspires others and shows we care about them.

Thank you to all who participated for listening, sharing and contributing your ideas. Parkwood is committed to fostering a culture of Kindness.  We practice kindness to self, colleagues and community.  As part of our vision, we need to look inward to develop our own capacities in order to share them with others.  In the months and years to come, we will extend these opportunities to learn and grow to our volunteers, partners, families and the larger community.  We can’t do this alone.  We are all in this together!
